Service was quick, friendly, and... More

If you want a nice quiet dinner in relatively elegant surroundings and good quality food, near the opera house as the name suggests, this is a very convenient and good address. I loved the oven-baked fish and fresh vegetables. There wasn't much choice for starters (seasonal soup or salad) but this didn't bother us. Good choice of wines and friendly... More

we have been traveling for the last 4 weeks through out Europe. we were over the rich multiple sauces. the Opera Restaurant is well located with out door not crowed seating. the food was from the stone menu, which consisted of a meat of your choice, grilled with a choice of clean fresh vegetables.

Excellent food with friendly servers. It is pricy but well worth it for my last meal before I left to return home. The lamb was cooked on a cooking stone and was the best that I have ever tasted. The 4 sauces were Devine! Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
